The Golden Knights have signed Tomas Jurco to a one-year deal worth $700K.

Jurco has bounced around the NHL over the last few years and his latest stop will be in Vegas, or most likely Henderson (AHL). He only played in a combined 20 games last year, eight with Edmonton (NHL) and eight in Bakersfield (AHL). He had seven points (4G / 3A) in the AHL and will likely be a key contributor for the Silver Knights in 2021.

The Golden Knights have signed Tomas Nosek to a one-year extension worth $1.25M.

Nosek scored eight goals with seven assists (15 points) in 67 games in 2020. He has been super consistent but unspectacular during his time in Vegas, recording 15, 17 and 15 points in three seasons. Look for Nosek to be the Golden Knights' fourth line centre with Will Carrier and Ryan Reaves on his wings.

The Golden Knights signed Jimmy Schuldt to a one-year, two-way contract.

Schuldt signed with the Golden Knights after four years at St. Cloud State and spent his first professional season with the Chicago Wolves (AHL), where he had six goals and 15 assists (21 points) in 52 games. Schuldt will likely start 2021 in the AHL but will be one of the first blueliners to get called-up by Vegas.

The Golden Knights have re-signed Chandler Stephenson to a four-year contract extension worth $11.0 million ($2.75M AAV).

The RFA got a $2.0M raise after posting a career-high 22 points (8G / 14A) while appearing in just 41 games. The 26-year-old forward was a Swiss Army Knife for the Golden Knights in 2020, playing up and down the lineup, on the wing or at centre, depending on what Vegas needed. Stephenson is best suited in a bottom-6 role and if he's their fourth line centre, they're in great shape.

The Golden Knights have acquired Dylan Sikura from the Blackhawks for Brandon Pirri.

Sikura was a sixth-round pick of the Blackhawks in 2014 and turned pro in 2018. The 25-year-old winger spent most of the 2020 season with Rockford (AHL), where he was second on the team with 33 points (14G / 19A) in 45 games. Sikura has 14 points (1G / 13A) in 47 career NHL games and will be a fringe NHLer with Vegas following this trade.

Stone (foot) is questionable to play Game 5 vs. the Stars.

Stone was labouring at the end of Game 4 after blocked a Joe Pavelski shot but was able to finish the game. On Sunday, head coach Pete DeBoer did not have an update on the winger, so consider him a game-time decision for Game 5. Stone has struggled offensively as of late, posting just one goal and one assist in his last six games.

The Golden Knights and Robin Lehner have agreed on a five-year, $25 million ($5.0M AAV) contract extension, to be signed after the playoffs.

According to David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period, the Golden Knights and Lehner agreed to this extension before the NHL's Return to Play and it will become official following their playoff run. This sheds a little light on why the Golden Knights have been riding Lehner throughout the postseason and have been reluctant to go to Marc-Andre Fleury at times. This could also spell the end of Fleury's time in Vegas. Since being acquired from Chicago, Lehner has gone 12-5-0 with a .924 SV% in 17 games with Vegas.
